On May 18, 2014, I wrote my very first blog post at LifeinBetween.me. I imagine many of you weren’t with me then…
I just re-read it – and found a TYPO! Ugh! I thought about correcting it, but then…. it is what it is… (Can you find it?)
I’ve posted every day for the past year, and I can’t believe how much I have enjoyed it. I can’t believe the wonderful friends who have followed me through this and the wonderful friends I have made along the way.
THANK YOU, my 1,150+ friends at LifeInBetween.me for sharing this journey with me!
To thank YOU, I’d like to give away this card I made in honor of the occasion.
It’s not much, but it is from my HeART.
Here’s the plan….
Add a comment to this post letting me know what you enjoy most about LifeInBetween.Me.
Is it the recipes? the cards? the “art”work/crafting? photography? poetry/writing? personal stories…?
To all those that comment, I will randomly draw one name to send this blank card to so that you can use it to send to someone to thank them for a thoughtful gesture.
I will allow a few days for comments and draw a winner on Friday.
I had so much fun making this card on a rainy Sunday morning. I didn’t know where I was going with it or how it was going to turn out, but it evolved into a card I love.
Not only was I inspired by my desire to thank all of you, but The Paper Players Challenge is for a “girly” thank you card, and the Can You Case It Challenge was for May flowers, so I am entering this card into both of these “challenges.”
For this card, I used the StampinUp Pleasant Poppies Stamp stamped on Typeset Designer Series Paper with Black Stazon Ink, which I “watercolored” with an aqua paint brush using Tangelo Twist, Real Red, and Old Olive Inks. The sentiment is from StampinUp’s Lots of Thanks stamp set. I embellished with some linen thread, an antique button, some olive candy dots and a lace doily. I also used my favorite Lil’ Inkers Stitched Rectangles Die Cut to create the “stiched” rectangles.
I am a StampinUp Hobby Demonstrator, so if you are interested in learning more about StampinUp or ordering products, feel free to let me know.
Thank you all for a wonderful year of blogging at lifeinbetween.me. I look forward to sharing more in the coming year, and I hope you will share your thoughts with me.
Cheers & Hugs,
